- I guess what’s curious about Donald Trump’s legal situation is that, very much for the moment, it isn’t collusion with Russia that appears to be doing him in, but hush money payments to young women whom he apparently had affairs with. I honestly thought this story wouldn’t amount to much; I didn’t even give it a separate thread in my archive. Right now, it appears central.
I don’t normally announce new pages on my main web site here unless they’re research journal entries. But there have been a couple developments this year that have me thinking more than I usually do about ethics and I am realizing how central my ethics are to my world view and even what work I can tolerate. If you want to see what makes me tick, here is a large part of the story.

All good things come to an end. And so, after 23 years, does The Weekly Standard. I want to express my gratitude to our readers and my admiration for my colleagues. We worked hard to put out a quality magazine, and we had a good time doing so. And we have much more to do. Onward!

I was looking at my list of #neoconservative publications. It’ll be mighty thin with this demise, which will make it harder to repeat the approach I used in my dissertation. I agree with @BillKristol on almost nothing. But the @weeklystandard was a valuable source. https://t.co/7eww94yv4v
